of the long range rockets which can target cities as far north as tel aviv. there is one report from gaza that the palestinians had fired a rocket at tel aviv but there is no confirmation of that. there was no news of it landing. one missile did get to the anti-rocket defense system and killed three israelis who apparently did not obey instructions to seek shelter but were looking at the action from their balcony. the army is telling everybody in israel, do what you're told and then you'll stay safe. inside gaza, at least 13 palestinians have been killed, 100 wounded. israel is continuing the attacks not only from the air by the way but also from ships at sea. israeli troops are also poised on the edge of gaza and reserves are being called up, too, in case the operation becomes bigger and israel launches a ground invasion of gaza which israel says they do not. hamas does not want. but it is certainly a situation. >> martin fletcher there live in tel aviv. thanks so much. >>> nbc meteorologist bill karins is tracking your weather. he has your forecast. good morning you to, bill. >> i'm all

york city and we begin with a looming showdown over the so-called fiscal cliff. the white house is showing its cards and sending a message ahead of the president's face-to-face meeting with republican congressional leaders. it'll take place on friday. president obama plans to open negotiations by calling for $1.6 trillion in additional tax revenue over the next decade. that amount is likely far more than republicans would be willing to accept and double the amount that speaker boehner had offered the president during their debt negotiations last year. today, the president is scheduled to meet with ceos from a dozen companies among them general electric, ford and ibm. they'll discuss ways to work together and try to find a balanced approach to reducing the deficit. during a closed door meeting yesterday with union leaders and liberal supporters, president obama reportedly vowed that he would "not budge" when it comes to letting the bush tax cuts expire for the country's highest earners. labor leader and president of the afl-cio was among those at the white house meeting and says
distance rockets. israel wants to eliminate the rocket threat against its cities from gaza. you mentioned in your introduction i think it is 850 rockets fired this year at israel. they fired 100 the last five days. that's what provoked the response. now the problem is that israel, it was sensed that israel's hands were tied because of their relationship with egypt. egypt was in fear that egypt would end the peace treaty. that is one reason why israel feels it's calibrating carefully the attack on gaza.poised on th of gaz yachlt they're trying this pinpointed air attacks and also attacks from the sea. they resumed the policy of targeted assassinations against hamas leaders. they want very much to end the threat from gaza. but they also do not want a ground invasion partly because of the cost and also because they don't want to alienate egypt. so this is a very dachg us ange moment for this region. >> we know that they have great familiarity with attacks on two fronts. lebanon in the past and attacks from the south. again now with the new conflict that appears to be growing between israel a
that. central park in new york city had almost five inches which is unheard of this early in the season. the storm almost looks like a tropical storm. it's wrapping warmer air into new england. the roads will melt in a hurry in especially the high traffic areas. the snow has just about ended in the white. a little left here. the big heavy snows are done with in just about all areas. so we're going to deal with rain, drizzle and strong gusty winds. if there's going to be any wind damage this morning, it's going to be out here on cape cod. providence, good wind. we have been gusting in the 50s for the last couple hours over the island and all through cape cod. that's the only issue with the storm left. as i mentioned, the temperatures are starting to go above freezing especially the big cities. the highways will see improvement as we go throughout the morning. the forecast goes into the 40s. later today they're showing zero problems on the roads in all these locations. we should be in the 50s on friday, so it will be gone. there's another big storm behind this one. blizzard warnings in mo

, a cash-strapped city in california will embark on a curious modern experiment. san jose's citizens will be invited to play with the city's budge for a day using pretend money. the hope is that by logging into these computing-cum-budget exercises, residents will become better informed about how their budget and city work, and that, in turn, should make them more engaged in crucial policy choices. should the city save money by reducing its firemen on trucks or bite the bullet and raise taxes instead? a cynic might dismiss this as a marketing or political gimmick, but if nothing else, the experiment is distinctly thought-provo thought-provoking." i'm curious your thoughts because in your essay you also talk about switzerland. they obviously face unique comparisons to the united states. we're a far larger cannot tri wi country with a lot more poverty than they face. what is your belief of why it would work here? >> it's been tried in brazil, but the idea is you get people at a local level together to understand the importance of tradeoffs. if you ask people in surveys, what do you want
to people in cities, in the northeast, they can't be a one-region party. again, it's not just bobby jindal, it's across the board where you have prominent, influential republicans re-thinking what it means to a republican. and that is, i think that is the one silver lining for the republican party from the results last week. >> by the way, jim, that's a big, big silver lining. a big silver lining. this is a party, this wasn't a goldwater type wipeout. it was a couple of percentage points in the popular vote. you have a president whose campaign team was brilliant and they outmaneuvered the republicans tactically in nine states. no doubt, we were out of touch with voters on issues, but it was a huge tactical win for the white house, two percentage points. this wasn't a landslide, and if we recalibrate and stop listening to the conservative media complex or whatever david from called it, that's good news. >> one question is, if you use the dlc model of the democratic model after '84 trying to find a modernizing and moderate way forward, i think i'm right it was founded in '85. that took seven
in the cities and in towns that we live in as well as, obviously, in the congress has not really overtaken the entire process. barack obama was re-elected, and we have been told repeatedly in print and on these programs that this particular president is very difficult to access emotionally, that he is reserved, that he is withdrawn. and you saw there in that clip the president of the united states tearing up before a group of people who have spent an enormous amount of time helping him get re-elected. and it just points to the fact that the president, at the ends of the day, while the president of the united states is a human being. and he realizes quite well, more than any of us would ever realize, that the end of his trip, his electoral trip, summons the beginnings. and i think that's what brings the tears. his journey, historic as it is, legendary as it is, the first black president of the united states of america, traveled the country from coast to coast, state after state, small town, big city, tremendous crowds initially in 2008. again, running for re-election this year in a time whe
